Buena Vista Social Club on Istanbul stage tonight
ISTANBUL - Hürriyet Daily News
Company photoBuena Vista Social Club is giving a concert in Istanbul tonight. The concert starts at Ora Arena at 9 p.m. and tickets are available at Biletix booths. Buena Vista Social Club released its only studio album, produced by Ry Cooder, in 1997 and achieved instant success.
The album, which featured a specially assembled group of veteran Cuban musicians, was further propelled by a documentary about the band from acclaimed film director Wim Wenders and later by a series of international tours and albums by many of the featured musicians. Buena Vista Social Club became a phenomenon.
Now, following a series of hugely successful performances in recent years, the 13-piece Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club, featuring a number of Buena Vista Social Club alumni, is set to make its eagerly awaited return.
